Another Reason to Love Blogging



Remember, back on February 29, when I wished my friend, Jack, a happy birthday? But I said that he would not see the blog entry, because he "doesn't do computers". Well, he saw it!

Let's see if I've got this right. Maryknoll's "Community Outreach Coordinator" saw it. From there it was sent to the Council Secretariat Supervisor, who figured out it might be for Jack, known to them as Father John, of course. Yea!!

He says he celebrated with a birthday dinner with friends.

Jack's friend, Debbie, who types letters for him, also has a computer, and between us we can probably communicate with him a bit more often than I have in the past. I'm so grateful to all those who had a hand in passing along my birthday message, and especially to Debbie. Perhaps she and I will also become friends. That would be nice. I've sent her my url of course.

So - Hi there, Jack! Hi, Debbie! And thanks to Blogger. You did us a favor.

Hello! This is wonderful. It truly is amazing how people can connect through blogs. And it is always nice to gain another friend. One can never have too many friends. Well I am happy for you, Jack and Debbie. Lisa

I am the Debbie you mentioned in your leap year birthday blog. We have been conversing via email, but I thought I'd comment on the blog since blogging is new to me. It sounds "addictive". But I appreciate the "hellos to Jack" in the comments and will pass them on to him. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Debbie. Maybe Jack willl enjoy that, and I'm sure we all appreciate your relaying it to him.
